In the EU, all registered UIs and NIs fulfil the requirements of REACH and the EU Fertiliser Regulation, ensuring that their handling, storage and use do not pose unreasonable risks to users or the environment when used in accordance with labelling and approved uses.
European Green Deal
The European Green Deal and its climate neutrality ambition will require a deep industrial transformation within a short time frame.
Moreover, with a raising demand for food and a reduction of arable land per capita, it is a challenge for farmers to boost yields.
UIs and NIs benefit both the environment and farmers by offering valuable solutions for sustainable and effective nutrient management.
Thanks to their contribution to meeting ammonia reduction targets, UI are considered mandatory or best practice recommendations in countries including Germany, Denmark, France, Poland and Ireland.
 France has listed NIs among the agricultural practices which are eligible for the Label Bas-Carbone/Méthode Grandes Cultures to reduce the carbon footprint of agriculture: https://www.ecologie.gouv.fr/sites/default/files/M%C3%A9thode%20LBC%20Grandes%20cultures.pdf)
